Having full root-level access means that you'll be able to access and update every file on a particular server, which includes all of the system files, and to change system settings or install server-side software which may be needed by certain scripts and even offline applications to work effectively. A server is accessed at the root level through a root user, who has full privileges to do any of the aforementioned tasks. The root user may also make other users. For safety reasons, you're advised to have one more account for daily tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to perform a specific task on the hosting server. The root-level access feature offers you full control of your server from any location, provided that you know the user credentials.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

The VPS servers that we offer are suitable for different purposes, based on what you want to set up and run on them and what experience you have. If the server is ordered with the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access and will be able to take care of your online content through a graphical interface, whereas you can still install server-side apps that may be required by your web sites and even by offline apps, including VoIP software, media encoding software, various frameworks, etcetera. Devoid of Control Panel, you will also have full root-level access, but you will have to do everything using a console. If you choose to use our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel, there will be certain root access restrictions, but this configuration is the simplest to control. This way, you'll be able to pick the virtual server package which you really need.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

You will have full root-level access to your dedicated server whatever the package you select during the signup process, as long as the server is ordered with cPanel or DirectAdmin, or with no web hosting Control Panel at all. In all of these 3 cases, you will be able to modify any part of the software environment in any way you find fit, that makes our server packages ideal for multi-media applications with specific requirements that can't be covered if you use a shared web hosting account. The main difference between these options is that with cPanel or DirectAdmin, you'll have a web-based graphical interface to take care of various server-side options and also any website content which you create or upload, whereas when you order the server devoid of Control Panel, you'll have to perform everything through a Secure Shell console or to install a Control Panel of your own liking, if it's compatible with the Operating System which you've chosen throughout the registration process. With the final Control Panel option that you'll be able to pick on the order page - Hepsia, the root access will be restricted.
